    - Mr French, September 2021

    Thank you for your comments. We have it understood that it is around a 4 mile trip when obtaining the keys and not 14 that you have mentioned. With respect to your comments surrounding the fire in the sitting room, please accept our apologies as the owner did inform us about this change but there was an oversight on our part which has since been corrected. We are happy to learn that you have enjoyed your stay with us and would love to see you holidaying with us again in the future. Thanks again for your comments as customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. Best wishes, The Sykes Cottages Family. Property Owner
